bentyl 20 mg high Greetings from the wonderful island of Tenerife! Today I will write briefly about Bhastrika breathing.

Do you need to relax? Do you need to calm your mind? or, on the contrary, need energy for your body and mind to face your day to day? If that’s the case, you can achieve these states using Pranayama, or the control your breathing/ vital energy.

In this blog post I will talk about buy modafinil in ireland Bhastrika breathing, which energises the body and it’s suitable for people who suffer from dysthymia or  mild depression. This is the type of breathing we learnt the other day in yoga class.

The sanskrit term prāṇāyāma or pranaiama refers to the yogic breathing exercises  which aim to concentrate the praná or prāṇa (the energy contained in the body’s breathing).

Bhastrika breaks the main energy knots (grandhis) which  block the free movement of the energy current towards the top chakra (Sahasrara).

Benefits of Bhastrika Pranayama:

This Pranayama clears and focuses the mind. It revitalises and it’s excellent for the nervous and circulatory systems. It also brings oxygen to the cells, gets rid of impurities, detoxifies the  respiratory system and the subtle energy channels, while it brings warmth to the body, increases energy and its flow and improves the mood.

Contraindications:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart problems
  • Glaucoma
  • Sinusitis
  • Girls on their period might feel bloated after this excercise, so proceed with caution.

How to do Bhastrika:

  • We sit in a comfortable meditation posture, like  padmasana or Siddhasana.
  • We will perform a type of breathing composed of a rapid succession of exhalations.  We must close our mouth, and we will inhale and exhale through the nose quickly a few times.
  • When we inhale, we  bring the belly out and we empty the tummy when we exhale. It’s advisable to start with quick exhalations, one after the other, without interruptions.
  • When we want to finish the exercise, we will breathe a final inhalation deeply while lifting our chin; we will hold the breath as much as we can, while we contract the anus and urethra  (Mula bhanda), finishing with a deep exhalation lowering the chin and relaxing Mula bhanda.

The practice requires attention and full concentration to be able to continue to inhale and exhale with the belly movements, which is contrary to what we are used to (in Bhastrika we let the belly out with the inhalation and we empty when we let go of all the air).
